MODO Bass is the first physically modeled bass virtual instrument that gives you an unprecedented realistic performance for your bass tracks.

As a producer, you want the best possible bass sound you can get... you want realism, credibility and authenticity that delivers the most accurate and inspiring performance. Sometimes you just can't hire the right bass player, and some virtual instruments out there can leave you flat and uninspired.

Enter MODO Bass — the industry's first true physically modeled instrument from the leader in analog modeling technology. 8 years in the making and developed in collaboration with one of Europe's oldest universities, MODO Bass is a completely new breed of instrument that delivers the best of both worlds: the realism and sound of an instrument being played by a master musician and the convenience of a plug-in virtual instrument.

got this as the pre-release offer. tried it with single note step input and with live keyboard input also with boss gt-001 audio to MIDI conversion. by the time you have messed about including all the required keystokes/midi instructions for expression [pitch bend/muting/playing position etc] to achieve a realistic performance you may as well have just plugged a bass in and made a real recording of 'a' bass. fine if you are used to working with virtual instruments in that way but do not expect to sound like chris squire or Stanley clark! just by plugging it in to your signal path. it's an instrument NOT and amp/fx. what it is good for is determining what 'kind of bass sound' you want. but I would then go away and buy that kind of real bass. if you want instant basslines from MIDI files, it ain't gonna happen. if you are a studio it will increase your working time ten fold.

the amp section is a bit messy too. so I bypassed it and used the free amplitube 4 amps instead where mic positioning is more flexible.
